MergeIT2 Text Report Capture allows traditional text based reports to be captured by MergeIT. Once captured, the text report will have a template applied and subsequently may be printed, emailed or stored as a PDF. If the header information contains a username then the report may be printed using pull printing. Capturing text reports is not limited to Orchard systems. It can be used with legacy systems that print out reports directly to printers.
Quick to implement
Text extraction allows information such as username to be found and used in other modules such as email and pull printing
Allows older printers to be retired (eliminate the need for old paper stock such as fan fold)
Produces PDF files that can be more easily shared, stored and viewed
Applies templates to text based reports
Can support legacy Windows and Unix applications
Quite possibly. If the Unix system printed reports straight to an old line printer.then it likely used LPD as a protocol. MergeIT emulates the line printer and captures data sent to it.
Most implementation can be carried out with a few hours of customer time. Once a few test reports have been captured, PickSoft can work on them remotely.
You go at your own pace. It should be possible to implement within a few days.
